New Utah Transit Authority Ordinance
UTA recently enacted an ordinance which prohibits crossing a railroad grade crossing while distracted. The examples of distraction listed in the ordinance include talking on a cell phone, texting, having earphones or earbuds in both ears, "attending to personal hygiene or grooming," or reading.
The penalty for this offense is a $50 civil fine; repeat offenses carry a $100 fine.
